What visitors say

On our way down to Cape Town we stayed at 17 on Bird. The guest house is situated in a quiet, peaceful area and we enjoyed the spacious rooms. We found the swimming pool very relaxing and enjoyed the delicious food and great service at the restaurant. We can truly recommend this good value-for-money stopover.
